Almond Meal Encrusted Chicken Nuggets - REAL FOOD Healing Recipe from Mee Tracy McCormick
Organic chicken prepared in a REAL FOOD way is great when eaten in small portions. This recipe is grain-free, soy-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free. It is also Paleo, meaning ancestral-- meats, seafood, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. It is important to rotate your foods and if you are living a REAL FOOD life, your body might be some animal fat every once in a while. A family of 4-6 people should need no more than 1-2 chicken breats. Pair with a plate of alkaline vegetable like broccoli or kale and you'll have balanced bodies!
- 2 Large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 Cup blanched almond flour
- 1 Tablespoon organic adobo seasoning
- 1 Teaspoon salt
- Dash of cayenne pepper
- 2 Large eggs
- 2 Tablespoons grapeseed oil
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Slice into medium bite-sized chunks. Try to keep the size consistent as this aids in cooking evenly.
In a medium bowl, combine almond meal, adobo seasoning, cayenne pepper and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs. Place a handful of chicken bites into the egg, then coat with the almond flour mixture.
Heat the oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the chicken nuggets in the oil for 4 to 6 minutes per side, until golden brown. Transfer your chicken nuggets to a paper towel lined dish. When ready, remove the towel and serve.
